BACKGROUND: Laparoscopy is gaining an important role in the treatment of benign colorectal disorders. The aim of this study is the evaluation of clinical and functional results in 4 patients submitted to a laparoscopy rectopexy according to Wells. METHODS: Four females (22-76, mean 53.7 years) affected from a total rectal prolapse with fecal incontinence underwent this procedure from 1993 through 1995. Six months after surgery, at the end of a rehabilitation program consisting of kinesitherapy, bio-feedback and electrostimulations, all patients have been re-evaluated by means of a clinical exam, anorectal manometry, defecography. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: Preliminary results seem satisfactory and may allow to prefer this approach instead of the traditional open one.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopy is gaining an important role in the treatment of benign colorectal disorders. The aim of this study is the evaluation of clinical and functional results in 4 patients submitted to a laparoscopy rectopexy according to Wells. METHODS: Four females (22-76, mean 53.7 years) affected from a total rectal prolapse with fecal incontinence underwent this procedure from 1993 through 1995. Six months after surgery, at the end of a rehabilitation program consisting of kinesitherapy, bio-feedback and electrostimulations, all patients have been re-evaluated by means of a clinical exam, anorectal manometry, defecography. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: Preliminary results seem satisfactory and may allow to prefer this approach instead of the traditional open one.
